Silent Hall of Fame is the only place where we actively work to bring back from oblivion the names and legacy of formerly illustrious silent movie stars, which have made a major contribution to the industry and the world but do not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

We also fight for your right, the right of the public, to see silent masterpieces that have been kept in hidden vaults for far too long. Our website streams for free one such masterpiece that has not been seen in 85 years and is not available anywhere else.

Please visit our website to watch quality silent films absolutely free and to support the legacy of silent movie stars with your tax deductible contribution.

Silent Hall of Fame has started an online campaign to begin raising funds for the nomination of our first star for the Hollywood Walk of Fame. All contributions are tax deductible. Here is the web page:
https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/support-a-silent-movie-star-for-the-walk-of-fame/x/8105742
Please spread the word about the campaign and Silent Hall of Fame and help your favorite silent star receive belated recognition and glory.

Subject: Great Keaton comedy!
Great example of a really decent comedy silent. Mr Keaton has always been the best at physical comedy in silent film. Always his own stuntman, his athletic feats just haven't been equalled. (Well maybe I shouldn't dismiss Harold Lloyd... and Jackie Chan certainly deserves praise & there are probably a few off my radar...) BUT I swear he pulls off impossible stunts... Not only great stunts, but no less than half a dozen times, did I find myself laughing out loud!
Great light hearted movie to perk up anybody's day. Try it you'll enjoy it!
I think it deserves four stars.

Special thanks to the kind folks at The Silent Hall of Fame for uploading these great old movies!
